JillE Literacy will support HMH’s new core reading programme, Into Reading. The JillE books and teacher lesson plans will be available for classroom use from June 2019.
Eggleton, is delighted with the HMH partnership. She said
“We need more engaged students. Therefore, we need books that excite them – books that spark emotion, imagination, critical thinking, curiosity and creativity. Getting students interested in reading is my passion.”
“Our partnership with Global Ed will allow us to enhance Into Reading, our next generation core curriculum solution, providing teachers with powerful literacy solutions and engaging titles that empower them to grow learners into strong readers and confident students.”
